On the Needles

A road trip last weekend took me to Minnesota, and I was 15 miles away from home when I remembered the camera, the hardwood trees are just beginning to change color there were a few brilliant red maples and bright orange oaks. The next couple weeks will be full blown color. The ash trees in South Dakota are turning yellow. I found a yarn shop and bought some more yarn. The small balls are for a scarf and mitts for a new boiled wool jacket and darling daughter picked out some sock yarn. The dark blue socks are too dark to knit while I am in the car especially if I am wearing sunglasses. So I worked on the orange pair that were started early last spring and the camouflage. Its nice to have something to work on no matter where I sit. I need to concentrate on one pair so I can move on to more colorful yarn. linking to Judy's OTN --Ann--

Love all your socks, now I won't feel guilty when I have 3 pairs in progress next week. LOL
Your new yarn is wonderful. Interested to know - what is a boiled wool jacket.
